Arachova, on the slopes of Mount Parnassus, is the most famous winter destination in the country, as it combines winter sports at the ski resort and a strong après ski lifestyle. But what about living an experience of Arachova that goes beyond classic?
First, there are plenty of options for trekking for nature lovers. More specifically, whether you choose the Korykeio Andro at an altitude of 1,360 meters, or a walk with snowshoes along the borders of the forest area and the alpine zone, Trekking Hellas will show you the way. If on the other hand, you like horseback riding, you should visit the “Ati” in Livadi, where trainers undertake to initiate children and adults to the secrets of the sport. For those who like mountain climbing, there is the climbing field as the Portes and the Ski-Mountaineering Association. If again, you have something more extreme in mind, you can even try paragliding with Paragliding Fun.
Time for hip shopping? The “L’ Escalier” is the first concept store in Arachova, where you will find unique perfumes, accessories, and jewelry, whereas the “Oreon Gefsis” – meaning “Mountains Flavors” – is the place to be for deli shopping, as there you’ll find honey, pasta, sweets and handmade cheeses.
If you fancy a small excursion, Agoriani is the perfect destination, since it is a few kilometers away and features a meeting point for every hour of the day: the “Le Grand Chalet”, which is housed in a real chalet with stunning views and combines well-made food with cocktails and fun.
In terms of accommodation, the “Santa Marina Arachova Resort & Spa” is located just outside Arachova, features beautiful suites and villas and puts clear emphasis on relaxation and wellness. The “Elatos Resort & Health Club” borders on the national park and is the definition of the alpine concept combined with wellness and relaxation.
